[ This article was originally published here ]

COMMS-Workforce-Study-Survey-V2-Banner-No-CTA-1200x628-20210514The annual (ISC)² Cybersecurity Workforce Survey is now open. Your participation is vital for this influential benchmarking study used by organizations, governments and the media worldwide to advance conversations centered on closing the cybersecurity workforce gap.  

What differences did this past year make for your experiences in cybersecurity?  

  • Cybersecurity professionals overwhelmingly reported last year that team communications remained steady (60%) — or improved (25%) — as a result of remote work. Were your experiences working remotely this year as positive? 
  • Last year, most survey respondents reported stable (54%) — or even fewer (12%) — security incidents after moving their cybersecurity teams remote. Did that trend hold up for you this year? 
  • More than half of respondents last year (56%) said that cybersecurity staff shortages were putting their organizations at risk. Does your organization have the talent it needs to secure operations? 

Take the survey now.  

Note: The 2021 Cybersecurity Workforce Survey is open to all cybersecurity professionals; it is not exclusive to (ISC)² members. Everyone is urged to participate. Please share this link with your friends and colleagues. We thank you for your participation.
